During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

ما أسعد البيت الذي

Representative Text

1 - ما أسعَدَ البيتَ الذي
قد حلَّ فيه ابنُ العَلي
حيثُ المسيحُ المفتَدي
أضحى رئيسَ المنزلِ

طوبى لبيتٍ قائمٍ
أساسُه الدينُ الصحيحْ
طوبى لبيتٍ فاضلٍ
شعارُهُ حبُّ المسيحْ

2 - في ذلك البيتِ السعيدْ
يسودُ بِرٌّ ووِئامْ
إذ روحُ فادينا المجيدْ
قد حلَّ فيه والسلامْ

3 - لا بُغضَ فيه لا حَسدْ
لا شيءَ يدعو للخِصامْ
في حِرزِهِ يُنفَـى الكَمدْ
في ربعِهِ يحلو النِّظامْ

4 - بيتٌ أناشيدُ الهَنا
ترِنُّ في أرجائهِ
يغمُرُهُ ربُّ السما
بالفيضِ من آلائهِ
